Yes use acrylic and cut 2 pieces to fit into the corner of the top of the tank with about 1/2 inch inbetween them and cut a C shape to slide in the sock and overflow line

I actually pulled mine out though and just use filter bags now with draw strings which I'm pretty happy with but you have to stay ontop of cleaning them more imo

A bag will go "on" the line a sock will be held in place with the bottom piece of acrylic and the line will drain into the sock

Honestly I would go with as many soft lines as you can since it will allow for easier maintenance
